Rolling Justice Tour a Big Success

Thanks to all of you who participated in the Rolling Justice tour last week. The goal of the tour was to travel to communities across Maine to educate and encourage people to call Senator Snowe and Senator Collins asking them to oppose the nomination of Judge Sam Alito to the Unites States Supreme Court. We gathered petition signatures, lent out our cell phones for people to call the Senators and talked to the press.

If you didn't get a chance to participate in Rolling Justice - there is still a chance to get involved. Please consider doing one - or all of the following actions- to stop the confirmation of Judge Alito.

First, write a letter to the editor to your local paper expressing your concerns about Judge Alito's record on reproductive privacy, workers' rights, environmental protections, or disability rights.

Second, call Senator Snowe (202.224.5344) and Senator Collins (202.224.2523). Leave your name and address and tell our Senators to stand up for Maine people and oppose the nomination of Judge Sam Alito.

Third, call (207.622.0851) or email ( the Maine Women's Lobby for upcoming events and activities relating to the confirmation of Judge Sam Alito.

For more information or assistance with any of these actions please email
